Alhambra or, preferably, Alambra is located in Granada in Spain, in a dominant position on top of a tree-lined elevation in the southeastern part of the city.
It is a rich palatial complex and fortress (alcazar or al-Ksar) that housed the monarch of the nacérida dynasty and the court of the Kingdom of Granada. Its true appeal, as in other Muslim constructions of the time, is the interiors, whose decoration is at the top of Islamic art. This important Spanish tourist attraction exhibits the most famous elements of Islamic architecture in the country, together with Christian structures from the 16th century and later interventions in buildings and gardens that mark its image as it can be seen today.
Inside the grounds of the Alhambra stands the Palace of Charles V, a palace erected by Emperor Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire in 1527.
Together with the neighbors Generalife (a villa that includes extensive gardens and vegetable gardens) and the Albaicín district, it is the site inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list “Alhambra, Generalife and Albaicín, Granada”.
Alhambra is located five hours from Albufeira and on your way you can see other beautiful cities like Seville or Cordoba. Plan your holiday in the Algarve and reserve a couple of days to visit one of the most beautiful monuments in Spain.
